After many years of watercolour painting, I bought a hand printing press and have since concentrated on creating etchings of animals, flowers and still life. My work is usually of a single subject with no background detail.
I begin on a copper plate and work up the final picture to create a hand painted etching. My aim is to capture the character and the mood of the animals I portray, finding that dogs and cats have the most to offer through their characters. I also try to capture simplicity with my flower and still life studies.
Ten of my images have recently been produced into cards by the very large art publishing company The Art Group Ltd.
My work is collected worldwide.
